LoveBN1 Fest is set for a psychedelic taste of original Madchester madness, with the news that legendary happy house singer Rowetta is to take to the stage. 

Rowetta found fame in the late-80s providing vocals on rave classics – notably Sweet Mercy’s ’Reach Out’ in 1989 – before teaming up with the Happy Mondays. Over the next years, she sung on their classic single ‘Step On’, worked with the band on their two studio albums, and joined them on three world tours… and lives to tell the tale!

When the Happy Mondays split, Rowetta kept on doing her thing, recently stunning crowds as a singer with Hacienda Classical, and alongside New Order bassist Peter Hook on his Unknown Pleasures tour. Away from the Manchester music scene, Rowetta has had a glittering career as a singer on both ‘The Best of Broadway’ and ‘The Songs of Sister Act’ tour with Sheila Ferguson.

Always a hit at gigs across the country, make sure you come and get your melons twisted by Rowetta when she plays the brand spanking new LoveBN1Fest – part of Brighton & Hove Pride – on Sunday 5th August in Preston Park.
